Histroy Suggestions
« on: July 03, 2011, 10:29:50 AM »
The listed history in the Database is quite lacking at present, and I have a few suggestions as to what should be added.

First, are we really going to have Kim-Jong Il live until 2022? He is already around 70 years old, and 81 might be pushing it for his life as he is already suffering from some serious health problems. To solve this problem, we could either say that medicine has advanced pretty dramatically since 2011, or a multi-year long power struggle occurred after his death that lasted until 2022. Or we could just say he was lucky enough to survive.  Weirder things have happened.

Second, Dazmar Power and Production presents a slight problem with the time line. It occurs just 6 years after the second Korean War meaning the US must get out of the war without any major damage, or at least not for a considerable time. Therefore, I think that the North Korean's should lose the war pretty dramatically and with little US loss, but the North Korean's release a disease they developed that eventually becomes the "Great Plague" that shrinks the population of the world. Now, the disease has to be really, really slow acting as it must take greater than 6 years before collapsing the population sufficiently to collapse economies, so the disease should impact reproduction as that would be difficult to detect, but still halt population growth in the future.

6 years from a known virus to epidemic is not unheard of, take for instance the bird flu virus, that had been known well before it become and epidemic. A strain could be non airborne and then mutate to airborne which could create your epidemic.

I think a virus that is transferable only on bodily fluid tends to be slow acting compared to the common cold for instance.

The point of it is that it takes more than 6 years so Dazmar P&P gets off its feet. The Second Korean occurs in 2022 and Dazmar comes to America in 2028. It couldn't do that if the population of the world was shrinking from 7 Billion to 500 Million. Also, it is meant not to be natural but man-maid, so it should have a much quicker turn into a epidemic or even a pandemic, but being one that influences reproduction by decreasing fertility in a way that is difficult to detect, it would be a much longer time until it begins to really impact population growth and longer until someone realizes what is going on.
